Fall Foliage in Georgetown

We all know that peeping Fall leaves is one of the most anticipated moments of the year. Not only does Georgetown have great access to trailheads, but its cozy restaurants and charming shops make it the perfect pit stop for before or after your hike!

  • Few crowds and fall leaves are the theme for the beautiful Rutherford Trail up Guanella Pass. It has multiple trails, which is great for anyone, whether you’re just looking to soak up the scenery or set on putting in high mileage. Plus, you can access it from Downtown Georgetown.

  • Past Georgetown Lake, drive down Alvarado Road to get a few of Aspens thriving near Clear Creek.

  • Not interested in hiking? Drive up Guanella Pass for a scenic view of Georgetown nestled among fall colors.

  • Pro tip: before your hike, pick up delicious jerky of all varieties at the Georgetown Jerky & Emporium before heading up the pass.
